With more than $90 million spent and the jagged emotions of Californians over illegal immigration laid bare, the state's nastiest and most contentious election contests in years will rumble to a close Tuesday. More than 8.8 million Californians are expected to cast ballots, either in person Tuesday or by mail, electing or reelecting a U.S. senator, a governor and a host of lesser constitutional officers and determining the fate of several hard-fought propositions.

He gruffs and grouses about the liberal media, skewers the Clinton "high dragonhood" of Elders and Shalala, and declares that "poor Dan Quayle" has gotten bad press to rival Bruno Hauptmann's. Then he tells you he's voting for Kathleen Brown. Van Gordon Sauter, by happy admission, is "a hostage" in California's governor's race, a "government-loathing, tax-abhorring, bureaucrat-dreading Libertarian abducted by the wit, the charm, the intelligence and compassion of Kathleen Brown, my wife."

Starved for cash, the Kathleen Brown campaign for governor appeared to be running on the sheer energy of the candidate Friday, counting on a surge of support from President Clinton and a big anti-Proposition 187 vote to carry her to victory over incumbent Republican Gov. Pete Wilson. Wilson was ending his campaign for a second term much as he has in past statewide elections--calm, confident, and sitting on what seemed to be a relatively comfortable lead in most public opinion polls.

The end of the 1994 gubernatorial contest is finally in sight and here is what it's come to: Gov. Pete Wilson's campaign is struggling to keep its underwear clean, while Kathleen Brown's staff is having trouble buttoning its pants. The other day, H.D. Palmer, Wilson's communications director, was aboard a northbound plane when he got a call from campaign headquarters asking him to head south. He politely declined.

Just after midnight on Kathleen Brown's 30-hour, 1,499-mile marathon bus, van and plane tour, the candidate had an urge to dance. "We've got to get some exercise!" the impossibly buoyant Brown chided her fellow travelers: a rumpled assembly of press and campaign staff that sat slumped Thursday in the seats of her northbound campaign bus. They still had 13 hours to go--a long, chilly night that would include a truck stop, a chicken processing plant, two bakeries and countless swigs of mouthwash.

Steven Grimshaw voted for Pete Wilson in 1990 and until this week figured he'd vote Tuesday to give the battle-scarred governor another four years on the job. But Grimshaw, 44, a West Hills Republican, now says he plans to vote for Wilson's challenger, Democrat Kathleen Brown. The reason: Grimshaw liked Brown's 62-page booklet spelling out her vision for California. Wilson, says Grimshaw, has said too little about where he wants to lead the state.

In a contrast of styles between scrambling challenger and front-running incumbent, Democrat Kathleen Brown ended a marathon tour of California on Thursday with a boisterous rally at UCLA while Republican Gov.

Leaping aboard a mode of transportation that candidates have increasingly used to prove they are one with the common folk, state Treasurer Kathleen Brown began a 29-hour barrage of campaigning Wednesday by suggesting that Gov. Pete Wilson has a "secret deportation plan" to implement Proposition 187 if it is approved next week.
